Absolutely my friend. I can’t wait to get my mitts on it. Little brother had one with a long barrel. Wasn’t this long but pretty long. I only got to shoot it the one time before he sold it. That was like 15 years or so ago. There’s just something about an obnoxiously big revolver that just makes it that much more fun. Purdy to look at too. My first 500 mag was a 4”. Sold it for the 8-3/8” just for that reason.THAT IS AN IMPRESSIVE HUNK OF STEEL! Show us pictures when yours comes in.
Had the timing been different, I would have taken that Redhawk off your hands. I spent $4k on guns and $1.5k on reload supplies over the last 2-3 weeks. Pretty sure my wife might shoot me with my own gun 😂.Found a blued 10.5 in model locally myself $550 00. Put it on hold until I sell my Redhawk .44 hunter model I never shot it much and realized I didn’t need the double action. Looking forward to shooting the SBH.
Yeah, shooting long barrel revolvers is a bit different. It should be about the same overall length as my 500, just not as heavy. I bought it as a novelty gun. Just something fun to shoot, out of the ordinary. I’m going to have a holster made for it similar to this, just raise the holster a few inches so it rides higher.I know you had decided to get one and I didn't want to try and dissuade you. I have a blued version I got from the same store that the guy that shot Lennon bought his from. Right after he got shot him I remember because they had a BB with all the hate mail posted on it. It was an impulse buy after I got my Sec 6. It was on sale for $299 and I had that much so I couldn't resist. That was back when silhouette shooting was big. I wouldn't dare try to lay it on my leg to brace it today. It shoots great but seems too long and unwieldy. I thought about either lopping it off or having the barrel replaced with a 7-1/2." It has a sweet 1.3lb trigger on it so It's definatly a keeper even though through out it's life it had its neglect period and has the rust pittting to prove it.
Ought to be fun drawing the gun from that rig. Careful you don't throw your shoulder out. Congrats though. Be sure to post pics of the gun in that shoulder rig.Yeah, shooting long barrel revolvers is a bit different. It should be about the same overall length as my 500, just not as heavy.

The one I found is blued. Got plenty of reloaded 240g Xtp will be fun at the indoor rangeI like the Redhawks too, just don’t have one yet. This will be my 7th Blackhawk. I’ve had 2 S&W revolvers. Both 500 mags.
That’s a beauty. Hope you enjoy it.
